UCBRFA Distinguished Faculty Seminar Series: Professor Michelle Ellsworth
Join us for an educational evening with Distinguished Professor Michelle Ellsworth, who will share excerpts of her work and talk about some intersections between: dance, language, machine learning, and some classical Greek writers.
Specifically, Professor Ellsworth's presentation will cover two pieces:
- Phone Homer: Clytemnestra's Guide to Surveillance-Free Living is a techno-feminist remix of the ancient epic poem, The Iliad. This so-called “work” demonstrates how to avoid exposure to: 1) unstable “watching” and 2) insecure humans. With a completely offline internet and prerecorded replicas of her most frequent conversation, Clytemnestra demonstrates how to live free from surveillance and interpersonal drama.
